Entire Country Silent After Police Kill Another Man Who Told Police “I Can’t Breathe”
The year 2020 is going to be one that people will not soon forget.
There was so much that happened within just a short time frame ranging from the pandemic, the death of George Floyd, anarchists taking over Seattle and Portland, and a sham election.
It’s difficult to say which of those incidents has shaped this country the most because they have all had their own individual impact in some form or another, but the one that I would like to focus on in this article is the death of George Floyd.
This incident literally led to cities being burned down and people so afraid for their lives that many went out and purchased weapons in order to be prepared.
A newly released video shows a California man who died two years ago screaming “I can’t breathe” while being restrained by authorities, ABC affiliate KXTV reported.
A California judge ordered the video of Edward Bronstein’s death to be released to the public on Tuesday.
In the nearly 18-minute video, Bronstein, 38, is seen refusing an order from California Highway Patrol officers to take a blood test, according to the ABC affiliate.
Five CHP officers continue to hold Bronstein down, with some putting their knees on his back as he shouted “I’ll do it! I’ll do it! I promise!” the ABC affiliate reported.
“It’s too late,” one officer replied.
Bronstein began to shout “I can’t breathe!” and “I can’t!” as authorities continued to restrain, according to the video.
“Stop yelling!” one CHP officer said to Bronstein.
A medical professional took his blood as he appeared unresponsive.
Authorities began CPR 11 minutes after Bronstein’s last screams, KXTV reported. A second video shows officers and paramedics unable to revive Bronstein.
This just goes to show you that there is a double standard in the country, at least on the part of some people.
If the people who protested and rioted over the death of George Floyd were really that upset about police brutality, then where are they now? They are silent. They don’t care because this guy doesn’t fit their demographic.
